Face paint by Shelly was awesome! Shelly, herself, got back to me quickly and was so sweet. She answered any questions I had. I had Gladys as my artist and she did a wonderful job! All my guests were complimenting on how great she was. Her face painting and balloon animals were a hit! For my next party I will definitely be contacting Shelly!
We hired Shelly Luan for my daughter's birthday party last Saturday. Shelly is a genius face painter, very reasonable and extremely sweet.
All the parents at the party asked me for her name because each of her designs was a like miniature work of art. Her minions from Despicable Me were so perfect you couldn't tell if they were a tattoo licensed by the movie company or hand-drawn.

Best face painting artists ever!!!
Face painting by Shelly is the best!!! Used them for two parties now and both Shelly and her partner Gladys did such an amazing job with the kids, got them all painted and so beautifully. We heard nothing but compliments from the parents and nothing but smiles from the kids.

Face painting by shelly is the best!!!
We contacted Shelly for face painting and ballon art for our son’s 1st birthday party and were lucky enough to have Daniela as our artist. She was amazing, super talented, and a pure joy to work with! The kids loved her, the adults loved her, and she fit right in like a member of the family.
From the inquiry to the party we felt like Face Painting by Shelly was just as excited about our party as we were and it made the entire experience wonderful. We look forward to working with Shelly and Daniela in the future and highly recommend them for your event!

Shelly loves people, especially children. She herself is a lovely and ever-smiling kid. I have seen her facepainting kids with exuberant giggles, loving smile and sweet gentle brush touches tirelessly for hours without taking a break! Kids and parents often line up a long queue just for their turn. Shelly once extended her facepainting almost half hour (without pay) just to cover the last kid who had been waiting faithfully to get a rainbow butterfly on her little face! Kids' and parents' praises, compliments and appreciation pour in from everywhere.
Beside excellent facepainting she is also an artist of high aesthetic endeavors. Even those demanding art-lovers and collectors from southern France (like Provence, Marseilles) purchased her paintings and art pieces generously. Early in high school, the art teacher would often call her "my dear multitalented little star", for her artistry in singing, dancing, painting. Recently Shelly hosted a bilingual video program for kids which is becoming more popular daily. Watch and see Shelly's optimum performance before you meet her in person for facepainting or purchase her paintings and let her sign in person :-) Here is the link to the introduction of this video:
Shelly volunteers her arts and time whenever there is a chip of vacancy in her busy schedule. She donates "items-bag" to Churches quietly without slightest idea of tax write-off. When she saw a hungry/tired grandma sitting at a corner street of Chinatown she stopped and handed over a hot steamed bread with warm loving greetings…
As her friend/colleague of 20+ years, I would recommend Shelly with my heart glowing in delight and two thumbs up!

Shelley wasn't available for my party so she booked her top artist Julie who was amazing! She arrived about 20 minutes early to set up, and during some down time she twisted balloons for the children. Her work was amazing and she super accommodating by staying an extra half hour for the late comers. I would definitely recommend her and would book her again for another party. Thanks Julie!

Shelly was at our 4th of July party a few months ago and what she did was out of this world. The faces and tattoo designs she created for our kids were amazing, beautiful, original and very professionally done. The beauty was indescribable. All the kids were happy, their parents were happy and long after the party the people were still leaving compliments for Shelly's work and asking to bring her back. And we are bringing her back for Halloween. Thank you for everything Shelly!

You may think that face painting is just for kids, but think again! We hosted a Day of the Dead party for our adult friends, and Shelly turned all of our guests into sugar skulls for the night. It was an amazing transformation that will not soon be forgotten! Shelly is an absolute professional, an extremely talented artist, and also the sort of friendly, kind person who instantly puts everyone at ease. We would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Shelly was the hit of my one year old's birthday party! She was on time and was able to set up quickly and get to work creating masterpieces on the kids and adults! The artwork was beautiful and she is so creative! We told her that she has to be a part of every birthday now! I can't say enough and am looking forward to working with her again.
Fantastic, Easy-going and great with kids!!!
“We hired Shelly for my daughter's birthday party and she was so great. The party changed venues at the last minute because of weather and she was very flexible and quickly met us at the new location and got set up right away. She had about (30) 3 to 5-year-olds waiting for face painting and she managed it AMAZINGLY. She never got flustered or impatient and somehow managed to keep them all calm as they watched her paint magic onto each child's face. She did an excellent job and we would definitely hire her for the next party.”
Awesome face painter and great with kids!
“Thank you, Shelly! We really enjoyed having your team help us make Max's party extra special. You were great –you took charge, showed initiative and were really, really wonderful with the kids. We will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a face painter/party entertainer.”

Shelly is the best!!!!
I hired Shelly to provide entertainment for my 1-year-old 1st birthday party last week. Shelly absolutely blew us all away - great Is an understatement... She had the munchkins at my party running around looking like the actual Spiderman, lion, princess and anything they may have wanted. She actually loves what she does, and her goal is just to make the children happy.
I absolutely will be using Shelly again and so will my friends and family. I highly recommend Shelly. THANK you again, Shelly you were amazing and your wonderful personality and generosity was a plus. Keep up the great work.”

Fabulous and Fun Face Painter, Kids Love Her!!
Shelly did such a wonderful job at my girl's birthday party a couple of weeks ago. Besides her considerable skill as a face painter, she has a very special way with kids and was able to make it fun for everyone, even though some of the kids were initially skittish. She's a perfect addition to any kid's party, and I'm so happy to have hired her, will definitely use her again next year. “

Terrific Face Painter!
“Shelly worked my daughter's second birthday and she was wonderful! She has an incredible ease with children and always kept her cool– even when there was a line. So professional. Her painting is beautiful and she can make all kinds of images. Everyone was thrilled! She really added something special to the party!”
“Shelly was amazing with the children!! So warm and caring! She made our daughters' 5 and 7-[S2] year-old party so much fun! The kids were thrilled with the face painting and fun balloons! Many other parents wanted her contact info afterward. I highly recommend Shelly and will definitely ask her to come to our future parties!!!! “
